Spring 2013 Groups
Groups are often the most effective way to
- gain support and encouragement from others;
- learn how you are perceived by others;
- gain specific skills to improve your life;
- develop relational skills.
Ground rules, including confidentiality, are typically established with group members to help promote trust. For most benefit, consistent attendance is strongly encouraged.
**The Spring 2013 Groups and Workshops schedule is coming soon! Check back again soon.
